Press Release

(WASHINGTON, DC) – Representative Conor Lamb (PA-17) released the following statement today after the House passed H.R. 256, which repeals the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) Against Iraq Resolution of 2002:

“Nearly 20 years after Congress authorized military force against Saddam’s Iraq, it is time to recognize that that AUMF is no longer necessary.  I am confident that the Biden administration has the legal authority it needs to protect our troops and our country, and that this President will follow the law in any future conflicts.”
